Protect. Connect. Grow.
Teraco is the first provider of vendor neutral Data Centres in South Africa. Customers benefit from the cost savings and improved resilience of securely housing their information systems and networking equipment in a facility built and operated to best practice global standards by an expert organisation with absolute focus on Data Centre technology.


What does vendor neutral mean? Teraco customers can:

• Connect to any Carrier or Network Operator
• Connect to any Service Provider
• Connect to any customer within the Data Centre, without restriction. Standard, open interconnection policies.

Founded in 2007 and backed by leading international investors and Treacle Private Equity, a black owned South African private equity group, Teraco is a Level 4 contributor (DTI Codes). Teraco operates one Data Centre in Newlands, Cape Town and one Data Centre in Isando, Johannesburg (opening September 2009) and will be expanding to other sites.


PROTECTGuaranteed Resilience & Uncompromised Security

Always One Spare

Teraco guarantees availability. Data Centres are built to the highest international specifications. Fire protection, power, cooling and interconnect are all provided according to an N+1 policy.

Safer Environment

Uncompromised security and guaranteed environment are backed by Service Level Agreements. Advanced cooling provides the ideal climate, safeguarded with sophisticated fire detection and suppression. Teraco data centres are located in buildings in convenient, low-risk areas with tight security and stringent access controls.

Reliable Power


Teraco guarantees power supply. All cabinets are supplied with two independent power circuits from a resilient bank of UPSs. Maintenance can be performed at any time on any of the UPSs without service disruption. Multiple power generators ensure that an interruption of the municipal power supply, even combined with component failure, would not affect customers.
